Dirty dogs, growling and barking with gusto

Yes! I know that a voice coach has produced CDs for Americans to learn various foreign accents (RP and Cockernee amongst others) but now the Guardian tells me some for Brits to learn American as she is spoke. I fully intend to give this a go.

Three years ago at Origins, I played an American in a roleplaying game. My accent was so appalling that they took the character away and made me play Biggles instead. I shall overcome.

I'm not sure about the American accent in the mp3 snippet you can download. The melody isn't right at all and sounds far too British. Actually, he sounds a lot like Neil Gaiman.

PS: your link doesn't work as you mistyped the "a href" (you have herf).

I think that's the journalist's effort not the disk itself.

Thanks for the html heads-up, my typing is all over the shop today. It's a bit like watching 'Allo Allo'.
